. paul kangis again. before the ross mirkarimi vote i didn't know who supervisor olague was and it takes that courage and supervisor that with stood the attack and it's the whole idea being able to speak freely in this city in spite of what the rich think, being able to act freely within this city which makes san francisco a city that the whole world looks at and follows and listens to and so even though i'm a critic of cca, simply for scientific reasons, i appreciate the fact that the supervisors did the thinking they did and came to the conclusion they came to because even though the environmental crisis is going to bring huge storms this year beyond the political storms. in fact the environmental storms are probably

caught my attention was a column today by ross in "the new york times" who wrote this chapter, the demint chan ter, the tea party chapter, call it what you will, is probably a necessary stage for the american right. it's normal for defeated parties and movements to turn inward for a period of ideological retrenchment before new thinking takes hold. now, the reason demint is leaving is because time is up for the tea party. >> i don't think so. he got a dozen tea party-backed republicans elected to the senate that would not have been there were it not for him. it's also true that he supported some candidates thatdy did not win. you can bet mitch mcconnell was not unhappy he left. he feels he's not a majority leader because of demint is there. there's a lot of "ding dong the which is gone" sentiment. >> a lot of republicans up to mitch mcconnell the senate republican leader who believed they would be in the majority today if not for some of the candidates. >> on the right there's a little too much demoralization. even's so depressed on the conservative side, very similar to wait was like

by ross dalpot in the "new york times" who wrote, this chapter, the demint chapter, the tea party chapter, call it what you will, was probably a necessary stage for the american right. it's a norm -- now his -- the whole gist of this column is that jim demint's time is up for the tea party? >> what he has said is that he does feel like he was successful in getting about half a dozen te party backed republicans in the senate who would not have been there if not for him. it is also true that he had some important candidate who is did not win and you can bet that senator mcconnell heard that senator demint is coming -- >> and of the candidates that jim demint backed in states that were red states and the republicans should have won, there's a number of republicans up to mitch mcconnell, the republican leader who believed they would be in the majority today if not for some of the candidates. >> there's a little bit too much demoralization, everybody's so -- very similar to what it was like after the 2004 election, when george w. bush was elected and liberal democrats saying, oh, my gosh, we'r

've been able to see themselves. >> next, we take a tour of the uss slater with richard ross. mr. cross describes the role these boats played in winning the second second world war. >> "the shepherds of the sea," and it's a book, basically, about destroyer escorts in world war ii and the men who sailed them. and destroyer escorts actually ended up being the most important, um, successful and valuable antisubmarine vessel in the united states' fleet during world war ii. they're credited with sinking some 70 u-boats, 26 japanese submarines, and they fought in every major battle in the pacific theater. so they were a very senate force in world -- significant force in world war ii. and what's even more remarkable to me is the people who were manning those boats. these are mostly teenagers with little or no experience on the water with. in fact, some of them told me that the only thing they knew about boats is that the pointed end went first. so they were a remarkable group of teenagers. um, they were very courageous, and they were being led by their skippers, and their skippers were ivy lea

. naacp, national council la ross a, labor groups, there's a broader excitement around the protections of families in this country and realizing that doma is not a nerdy policy matter sitting on capitol hill. it has real life impact and harm for families around the country. there's a national discussion happening about the freedom to marry in this country and the supreme court is stepping into that discussionment. >> there seems to be enthusiasm. the level of emotion that people were having about the willingness of the court to hear it was somewhat surprising to me, bob. >> people are pumped up. i'm very surprised by this. there was a time not long ago where you couldn't even mention gay in sort of like ordinary public discourse. so there's been a sea change and there's no question about the momentum now. this is what i mean again about the conservatives or right wingers being on the wrong side of history. this whole idea of preventing gays from marrying whomever they want to is going to go down. it's a request of when that occurs. that's why i agree with kenji. i don't think that the

chemical weapons. joining me, ambassador ross who served with four u.s. presidents and was adviser in iran for secretary clinton and the director of the security counsel. what is the obama administration's red line on the chemical weapons? >> i think the president announced it last september and he repeated it last week. the secretary of state has done so as well. if check cal weapons are used, this becomes a red line and becomes something as the president said a few months ago, changes his cal cue louse. i think we have been out there very clearly saying that use chemical weapons and everything is going to change in terms of the possibility of american intervention. >> we have been talking about those words. what is the u.s. willing to do? are we specifically talking act boots on the ground? >> i suspect we are not talking boots on the ground. there are probably ways to get at this without that, probably from the air. i think we are probably also coordinating closely with turkey, jordan and israel because all of those countries have a profound concern, if in fact, chemical weapons are use
